VETERANS VILLAGE FACTS
– The site will include 15 to 30 sleeping pods and community restrooms, showers, cooking and eating facilities, and a communal room.
– Residents of this transitional community will be adult military veterans from Clackamas County who are homeless. They will be selected through referrals and screenings by county staff, veterans and social service agencies and support organizations.
The residents will be provided with health, counseling and other supportive services through the county, non-profits and other organizations to help them transition from this community to more permanent housing.
-- In a decision issued in December, the County’s Land Use Hearings Officer approved a conditional use permit to establish a transitional shelter community for veterans on land owned by the Development Agency.
